Bournemouth Helicopter Sightseeing Tour in Poole

This was an excellent trip. On the day the weather was perfect which made the trip great for photography. It is well worth paying the ground handler the small supplement to guarantee the front seat by the pilot where you get the best visibility.

As you know, my internet booking went wrong and took much fixing but once it was fixed I was delighted with the helicopter flight. The weather was perfect and the pilot very friendly. I paid a small supplement to guarantee the front seat which was money well spent as the view was terrific. Overall an excellent time was had.

Everyone at the site were lovely,would definately recommend!The helicopter was all is great working order apart from the window/door started flapping when in the air, bit worrying but the pilot explained it was fine-nothing to worry about. The pilot didnt explain what we were seeing which i thought was a shame-but luckily we knew what we were looking t as we live where we did our tour.
